Tiny's photo pick of the week

I just HAD to share this picture with you...
There he is: big ol' tough Lolo hanging out on one the top steps...
..too afraid to go any farther down.
This picture might seem a bit boring to you, but if you could have sound with it you would really laugh. Why? Because Mr. Lolo walks down about 5 steps (to where he is in this picture) then starts howling for Mom to come upstairs and give him love. Did I say howl? Actually, it sounds more like he is screaming AND someone is sitting on him even though he is all alone there on his 5th step down. As soon as Mom comes 'to his rescue' (!), his voice changes completely. I can't believe that Mom gets suckered into this wimpy carnival show every time, but she does...she comes quickly to answer 'Baby's call' (yes, she calls him 'Baby'...any self-respecting adult mancat would never allow himself to be given the name 'Baby'...geez...he really IS a baby!!) and to give him love and attention all because 'Baby' is too chicken to go all the way down the steps and ask for good loving directly from the Mom. Mom says that when he is being so noisy that she is afraid the neighbors will think she is torturing him if he screams/howls like that for too long. Actually, it is the other way around...he is torturing all of us!! What a goofball he is.

Well, the "baby" actually using an excellent strategy to ensure he's spoiled and doted on, Tiny. It's pretty typical of males of many species, unfortunately.

MOL, Target does the same to me. And although he's 4 now, I still call him baby, kitten, kersqueezlekitty etc. He loves it.

this seems to be the day for kitties manipulating their Moms! lol. That was just too cute!

Sparkle said...

OMG, you mean Lolo has to SCREAM for attention!? Maybe he IS being tortured. I mean, he does have to come down five whole steps.

Somehow, I get the feeling that your human enjoys this ritual.

P.S. Binga's nickname is "Big Baby." She thinks it is a compliment, but even my human admits that it is not.

Poor thing. Mebbe if you go up to help him, it would make it easier. xoxo
